The scandal surrounding Casey Anthony continues!
After the final episode of Investigation Discovery’s three-part documentary Casey Anthony: An American Murder Mystery aired, true crime fans were left to ponder a shocking development. Last year, Dominic Casey — a former private investigator who worked on Casey’s defense team — dropped bombshell after bombshell about who really killed two-year-old Caylee Anthony and what Casey’s relationship was like with her defense attorney, Jose Baez.
Keep reading to find out more about the allegations Dominic made five years after Casey was acquitted in her murder trial.

The allegations came to light after Casey’s 2013 bankruptcy filing.
The 31-year-old claimed that she was about $800,000 in debt in legal fees, CNN reported.
She was sued for defamation of character by nanny Zenaida Fernandez-Gonzalez — who Casey originally blamed for her daughter’s disappearance. Casey was also slapped with a defamation lawsuit from Roy Kronk, the meter reader who found little Caylee’s remains.
Dominic claimed Casey’s lawyer admitted that she killed her daughter.
In unsealed court documents from Casey’s bankruptcy case, Dominic said he was hired just days after Casey was arrested in July 2008 – 31 days after Caylee went missing, according to Fox News.
"[Jose] had told me that Casey had murdered Caylee and dumped the body somewhere and, he needed all the help he could get to find the body before anyone else did,” Dominic claimed.
He also claimed he walked in on Casey performing sexual favors in exchange for legal fees.
Dominic worked as a private investigator on Casey’s trial from July to December 2008 and recalled a time that he arrived at Jose’s law office unexpectedly. He said he “witnessed a naked Casey” as she ran out of Jose’s private office.
"That night I told her that she cannot allow him to continue engaging in this behavior. Casey told me she had to do what Jose said because she had no money for her defense,” read an anecdote from Dominic’s court documents.
Jose vehemently denied the claims.
Shorlty after the court documents were revealed, the lawyer released a statement about his alleged affair with Casey.
“I unequivocally and categorically deny exchanging sex for my legal services with Ms. Anthony,” he said in a statement to People. “I further unequivocally and categorically deny having any sexual relationship with Ms. Anthony whatsoever.”
Dominic published his claims in a tell-all book.
Even though they’ve yet to be confirmed, all of his allegations can be found in his three-part series, Privilege Waived.
